O’Ward, Newgarden Search for Every Point during Title Run

Notice anything about the way Pato O’Ward raced Saturday night, Aug. 21 at World Wide Technology Raceway? “Just really being aware of who we’re racing and when,” he said. A driver can gain up to 54 points per race, with a maximum of 162 achievable over the last three races. O’Ward leads Chip Ganassi Racing’s Alex Palou by 10 points, an order easily flipped by a result in any of the remaining three races. “You just always try to maximize every (on-track) session you’re in, whether it’s practice, qualifying or the race. By virtue of winning at WWTR, Team Penske’s Josef Newgarden followed O’Ward into the media center for post-race interviews.
